July 2012

The last week of July is action packed!

First, the release: On July 31, my new novella, The Short and Fascinating Tale of Angelina Whitcombe, releases digitally. (And it looks like the price is set for an awesome $.99, at least for pre-order!) Those of you who want print will unfortunately have to to wait till August 14th to order it.

And of course, with a new release, there are the giveaways: On July 30th, I’ll be celebrating the release at TheBallroomBlog.com. My book The Short and Fascinating Tale of Angelina Whitcombe is also up for grabs during the #SummerRomance Festival at Freado. http://bit.ly/L9Hor0 (If you use the code “ROMANCE”, you get 500 bonus points.) If you are already a Freado member, you can access my book directly at http://www.freado.com/bid/1936/the-short-and-fascinating-tale-of-angelina-whitcombe-by-sabrina-darby

Stalkers on the Road to Love

Today I’m blogging over at Desert Island Keepers. Come see why we’re all stalkers on the road to love! ;-) You can also see what movie I recommend all historical romance readers watch.

In other news, at the end of this month I will be attending the national conference of the Romance Writer’s of America. If you live anywhere near Orlando, Florida and you want a signed copy of On These Silken Sheets, come to the literacy signing on Wednesday, July 28th. There will be hundreds of romance authors signing and proceeds go to charity. For more information, click here.

Additionally, earlier that day, I will be presenting a workshop at the Beaumonde Conference. The Beaumonde is a specialty chapter of RWA, focusing on the Regency period. For more information on this conference, please visit here.
